Not everyone falls for minimalist spaces, but when done right they can be rather beautiful. The clean lines and clutter-free rooms makes this home visually stunning. Architect John Pawson and his wife Catherine used various shades of white to create subtle depth, but also included concrete, wood and bronze to give elegance and texture to the decor. The living room was specifically designed with an array of seating pieces arranged by the fireplace to create an area for quite contemplation. I don't know about you, but I feel extremely serene by just looking at the quietness of their sanctuary.
